Mystic River by Dennis Lehane
Mystic River

John C, September 11, 2009

Dennis Lehane has a real knack for characterization. These people live and breathe. Sadly, that talent makes this book all the more disappointing because his reliance on coincidence to advance and tie together his plot makes what should have been an incredible book merely unbelievable. The dialogue is much better than in the melodramatic film rendition.
